Russia will deliver 46 Kamov Ka-52K attack helicopters for the Egyptian Navy’s mistral carriers.
Ka-52Ks were designed for French-made Mistral helicopter carriers that were to join the Russian Navy last year, before France cancelled the deal over Ukraine. The warships are now being bought by Cairo, the director-general of Russian Helicopters said Wednesday.
"In the outgoing year, new contracts were signed with Russian and foreign helicopter users," Russian Helicopters Director-General Alexander Mikheev said in a statement published in the corporate magazine.
He added that a major sale of Kamov naval helicopters were part of the deals that Russia's state arms exporter Rosoboronexport had inked in 2015. The Ka-52K is a naval modification of the Kamov Ka-52 Alligator. It has reinforced landing gears intended for ship-borne attacks.
Russia and France officially terminated the 1.2 billion euro (some $1.28 billion at current exchange rates) contract on the delivery of the warships in August following French President Francois Hollande’s suspension of the supply late last year over the Ukrainian conflict.
In October, Cairo and Paris signed a contract for Egypt's purchase of the warships originally built for Russia.

A Russian delegation has left for Egypt to negotiate delivering communications and control equipment for the Mistal-class helicopter carriers France sold to Cairo after it cancelled their sale to Moscow. "Negotiations continue, the Russian delegation has left for Egypt to discuss with the Egyptian side the parameters of the potential deal with the available technical proposals on the communications and control equipment,"
Russian equipment is likely to be made available for Egypts Mistral-class helicopter carriers delivered by France. "It is likely that since the deal [on the Mistral delivery] between Egypt and France has been signed and the warship delivery is ongoing, with one [warship] already there and the other one arriving a little bit later, the decision [on the supply of Russian equipment] will be made, the equipment must work," Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General Igor Sevastyanov was quoted as saying by
